Discover all about life and death in ancient Egypt at Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum. The family-friendly exhibition Out of Egypt features genuine ancient Egyptian artefacts from Winchester Museum’s collection.

You can find out how the ancient Egyptians treated their dead and see objects that were placed in the tomb for the afterlife. There are scarabs and mummified animals, a mummy mask and foot cover dating from the Roman period in Egypt, amulets and bronze coins.

One of the highlights of this exhibition is the ‘handson’ approach with activities, games and puzzles on offer for all ages. The museum has also tracked down some of Salisbury’s very own Egyptian artefacts. These include mummified crocodiles, mummy cloth, and papyrus given by Salisbury Museum to the Bournemouth Natural Science Society.
